About meI work in local government doing media/public information. While I was a journalism major at Berry College, I did minor in literature. That explains all the nerdy/snooty classic lit.

About my libraryHeavy on "classic" literature. You can probably tell William Faulkner is my favorite author. On a side note, two of my favorite books are not on my catalog because I lent them out to people who failed to return them. But I'd like to mention them here "Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand and "Light in August" by .....yup....William Faulkner.
I like a little poetry...favorites are "The Waste Land" by T.S. Eliot and "Daddy" by Sylvia Plath.

Noticed you liked Sanctuary, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also southern, a bit violent, and a bit dark :) I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter)in case you'd like to read more about the novel before you commit:


I replied to your comment before I checked out your library, and I found two more titles we have in common, so I added them. You have an excellent collection of lit! I also noticed that I had read some of your books, but don't own them. (I have been a big library user all my life, so I don't own a lot of my favorite books. Alas.) Heart of Darkness, A Farewell to Arms, Crime & Punishment, Catcher in the Rye, & The DaVinci Code would have been on my list were I not too cheap to buy them. Good stuff!
Thanks a bunch! I'm still adding titles, assigning stars, figuring out how to use tags, and recognizing that I haven't read enough of my books! Some of them I remember starting, but I can't recall if I ever finished them. And a lot of them I know I've never read, good intentions notwithstanding! I've enjoyed this site for a few days now, and the thing I really like is adding a book that only one other member owns (that happened twice), and seeing which of my books are the most popular (like Grapes of Wrath and Chronicles of Narnia). On the Zeitgeist page they show all the most popular and numerous titles. It looks like Harry Potter is by far the favorite here.
